I hope I can get this blog thing to work. It was started in order to share posts in the Just Nan stitch-along hosted by Zeb of Keep Calm and Cross Stitch. I found the stitch-along by accident searching for pictures of finished Just Nan pieces. Hopefully I'll get to see a lot of them on the blogs of others in the stitch along.
Insert badge here! Couldn't figure out how to download the badge in order to post it. I hope posting stitchy pics is easier.
I haven't stitched in a while (about ten years). In November I stitched just a couple of motifs to make up as small pins for my mother. The pins are done as far as stitching goes and I'll make them up as soon as I get my sewing machine back from the shop.
I've been stitching on an 8X8 Q-snap frame and have noticed my left hand hurting lately. I tried propping the frame up on my knee and that helps a little but I might need to use a lighter embroidery hoop until I can get a good stand. I used to have a K's Creations stand and I was happy with it. I'm not sure they make a size that will work with smaller samplers and also the larger Mirabilia projects I would like to stitch in the future.
